A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends... I picked up Paradise and have gotten the checker-board border completed... and it met up without a problem... woohoo!!  Here's a snaperoo...

... it's a wrinkled mess and looks awfully blue in the picture but you get the idea...  I've already started thinking about the next piece to pick up when this one wraps... I think I'm leaning heavily towards another sampler... I do love a good sampler!!  Then there is Hallowe'en... I think I've landed on a great piece for the Fall to stitch...  so many projects so little time!

A LIttle Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, I finished up the rest of the 6th part of Fruits over the weekend... here's a snaperoo...

...  I made a major counting mistake in the big pale blue section and had to frog quite a large section... so I was surprised when I finished the entire section up and can now pack this away until the 1st of July when Part 7 arrives - and  - since I took off a few days around the 4th I'll get a good head start right out of the gate.

That's about all that is going on around here... except we did get a tremendously good piece of news at last weeks Zoom Meeting.... it is for certain that our office is closing up and we are taking a much smaller space AND that we are all getting to work from home permanently.  I am super happy about that... no commuting, no fighting for parking, no Muni or Bart  (the local public transport systems here in the Bay area) so from now on I will be at my dining room table for work and Zoom meetings!!

A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, stitching away this week on Fruits... here's the progress so far...


...I completed that snowflake-looking motif - it looked so odd half done... once I get the light blue filled in I'll get back to Paradise. Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends here is where my two projects are at the moment... first up is "Paradise"...

.. I was ecstatic about that "unfudgable" border meeting up.  So often with a border, I've had to adjust a stitch or two but this one was spot on.  
________________

Since it is the beginning of the month I also received the next section on "Fruits"... 
and got to stitching on that...

,,, as I always have done I am laying in the dark blue first.

The weekend was quiet... the City was windy and on the cool side with temps hoving in the low 50's... I do love Summer here by the Bay!!  That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!
